World Congress
The 9th Annual World Health Care Congress

Health care is proving to be a central issue in the Presidential race and the future of health reform rests on the outcome of the 2012 elections and is leaving uncertainty among the major industry stakeholders.  But, our Nation’s health care system remains broken and we cannot afford to wait for policy to repeal reform or decide to move forward with 2014 implementation. The 9th Annual World Health Care Congress focuses on what we can do as an industry now, to fix health care.  

The theme of the 2012 focuses on the intersection of strategy, innovation and execution and will bring together an agenda of multi-disciplinary CEO panels from health systems, health plans, purchasers, state policy and government and offers the opportunity collaborate from health care’s major markets through 3 days of:

  • 13 General Sessions
  • Industry Executive Summits
  • Futuristic Panels that Forecast Health Care’s Emerging Trends
  • World Health Innovations from Emerging Markets That Can Apply to the US Health System – India, Bangladesh Brazil, China
  • 14 Hours of Dedicated Networking with Cross-Industry Sectors with over 250 speakers, and 1,600 attendees!

Entering its 9th year, the World Health Care Congress (WHCC) gathers over 1,600 global health care, pharmaceutical and employer executives and leaders in Washington, DC on April 16-18 to engage in keynote presentations, debates, co-located Summits, case studies and emerging trend forums on the latest solutions to the issues facing the industry. No other industry event provides you with the amount of networking, thought leadership and executive level education that WHCC does. By attending, you will hear insights on health care policy from government officials to help with your long-term strategic planning while also gaining practical solutions from leading organizations to help your organization tackle issues with cost, quality and the overall delivery of care.
